“Light like birds”

“I envy you British people for the uncomplicated way that you live. For having the peace of mind to let a piece of metal become part of your national identity. For being calm enough to let a bike make you feel free. I wish it was that simple for us in Lebanon to feel light like birds, to be able to push away fatigue and desperation for the lack of a government. The only subcultures that we know are cliques of people cloaked in social instability”.
